Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #26

For our Blog Hop this month we were challenged to use something from the January – June Mini catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I decided to use the Sand and Sea suite for this challenge and to create something suitable for a 12 X 12 frame. The background paper is Sahara Sand and I used […]

Sand and Sea: Day 14

I was inspired to make this card from the Sand and Sea suite after I went to bed. I often get my best ideas while I sleep!!!! The base is Sahara Sand. I used a piece of the DSP on which I randomly embossed some shells in gold from the stamp set. I used Versamark […]

Sand and Sea: Day 13

I have had this suite, Sand and Sea, for a little while, as I bought it on preorder, but never got around to using it. I just love the colour palate and when I started using it yesterday, I just wanted to create more cards. My first attempt was using the Seaside Shells Dies, 3D […]

Darling Donkeys: Day 12

This stamp set Darling Donkeys is in the Sale-a-bration brochure. If you order $90 from the catalogues, you can receive this free. I combined it with the Oh so Ombre DSP which is also free in the Sale-a-bration brochure to create this cute card. The card base is in Basic White and I have used […]

Very Versailles and Peaceful Poppies: Day 11

Very Versailles and Painted Poppies have been two of my favourite stamp sets in the Annual Catalogue. I combined them to create this card. The base of the card is Old Olive and I added a piece of Very Vanilla. This was stamped with the script from Very Versailles (stamped off) I cut out ovals […]

Pretty Parasol: Day 10

I actually made this card for a challenge at Stamp Camp two months ago. It uses the Pretty Parasol Stamp Set. The challenge was to use Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate. I found the colours quite a challenge. In the end I used Smoky Slate for the Base. My top layer […]

Dandelion Wishes: Day 9

I began this card a little while ago and have wanted to finish it for a while. I was inspired by a card that another demonstrator, Marelle Taylor had done using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. The dandelion was stamped on Whisper White with Bumblebee ink. I then used a Fine tip Glue pen to […]

Enjoy the Moment: Day 8

I was given this stamp set at OnStage last November and have been slow to getting around to using it. I decided to use it in conjunction with the Postage Punch for today’s card. The base of the card is Garden Green and I cut a small strip from the front. I then cut some […]

Posted for you: Day 7

When I looked through the Annual Catalogue I almost missed this bundle the first time. Since I bought it, I have used it quite a lot. I made some beautiful cards for a shoebox challenge at a Stamp Camp I attended. The bundle is called Posted for You and includes a stamp set and punch […]

Hydrangea Hill: Day 6

This suite, Hydrangea Hill, is one of my favourites in the new January – June mini catalogue. I haven’t used a lot of purples until I worked with this suite. We have a beautiful purple hydrangea in our backyard and I love its colour. At times it has touches of blue going through the petals. […]
